What happens when you pour from an empty cup

 Ok, parents, this one’s for you. 

I talk to moms (and dads) daily who are advocating for their children, fighting tooth and nail to get to the bottom of the issues their kids face, and they are prepared to do whatever it takes to help. 

I also talk to moms (and dads) who are calling us because THEY themselves are experiencing symptoms, whether they be tics, fatigue, weakness, bowel upset or irregularity, heartburn, eczema, acne, flushing, and the list continues. There is a demographic of adults who are living in chronic pain, fatigue, and suffering, but they are just trudging through each day, living nap to nap, pill to pill, “sucking it up” and taking care of everyone around them. 

These parents are neglecting themselves. 

Ask a mom or dad to cut off their arm for their kid- no hesitation (figuratively- we go the extra mile for our kids, right?). Ask a mom or dad to invest in THEMSELF so that THEY can live a symptom-free and energy-filled life, they often hesitate. 

Is it worth it? Do we have the money? My teenagers are going to need cars and college funds. My partner doesn’t understand how bad it is because I cover it up. I’m not sure my husband/ wife will see the benefit of this program. Let me think it through. I’ll do my testing later. In a few weeks. Next month. After Summer. Next year. 

And so the days and weeks and months roll by, and these parents push their own personal health and well-being aside longer and longer and longer. Until the cup is empty. And you know what they say- you can’t pour from an empty cup

Eventually, the root causes that you ignored take a stronger hold. Imbalances tip the scales even more. Deficiencies and underlying infections invite more pathogens, bacteria, and imbalance in and you become an even more weakened host. 

You have no energy, no answers, and no hope that you’ll ever feel better. Once you are completely wrung out and miserable you become desperate for the symptom-free living that evades you. At this point, you may finally seek the opportunity to find the true answers and get well. By then, we have double the work to do to get your system back on track, because all those root causes have grown larger and taken over. We have to address them one at a time and undo the damage to your system. 

Have you ever heard the phrase “Let’s not and say we did?” 

Well, if you PRIORITIZE YOUR HEALTH NOW, and stop making excuses, or stop being afraid of the unknown, or stop thinking that everyone else’s wellbeing matters more than yours, you can SKIP the mess I just described. Let’s not go there.

Do the people who love you want you to continue suffering? NO. Do they want to see you happy and well? OF COURSE!!

What if you take your symptoms by the horns, get the necessary functional lab testing done based on our recommendations for your specific case, and get the answers you need in the next 3-4 weeks? 


What does life look like? You aren’t exhausted. Your joints don’t hurt. You don’t pop pills like candies to mask symptoms anymore. Your medication list reduces once your symptoms start to subside (under the care of your prescribing doctor). You are rested. You are happy. You don’t even need to take a nap, unless of course it’s a rainy day and you just FEEL like it. 

You climb stairs without issues, you take walks with your kids and grandkids, you put makeup on or dress up again because YOU FEEL GOOD. You laugh with your friends and family, you enjoy your days, and you barely remember what the laundry list of symptoms you had felt like, but you know that your health is back on track. 

How does that sound? Too good to be true? We didn’t say it would be smooth sailing or totally effortless. You may have to make some changes in order to get your health and happiness back. BUT IT IS POSSIBLE
